Dab of This and That

What has this picture got to do with this post - Not a "cotton pickin" thing! Just thought you might enjoy a touch of Spring (from last year), since so many are still dealing with that "white stuff".

I had hoped to have had accomplished another project this week, that might be worthy of blogging about for Met. Monday, but it did not happen. Some of you may be thinking - "She sure is a procrastinator" or " She is a little on the lazy side". Welllll - Yes - I am a little of both! :-D But my excuse I am using these days - I am going to "therapy". Probably should be going for mental therapy (maybe that is next :-D). However, I am starting my 5th week of physical therapy. Some of you may remember, I pulled a muscle in my leg in November, then started having problems with my lower back. Well, a very long story made short - Things got worse - A whole lot worse! It seems Mr. Arthritis and Ms. Sciatica Nerve wanted to join the "pain party" caused by "lame muscle" . It seems "lame muscle" told the others to BYOB (Bring Your Own BADSTUFF), and I have had quiet a mess to clean up after all of them.
You see - "muscle" is really a good thing, and the title "lame" only gets attached to it's name when he couldn't "carry his full load" or "pull his own weight". However, even the best of them slip and "go bad" sometimes when influenced by outside activity.

Ms. Sciatica Nerve - She is good also, until she lets her guard down and lets a bad influence like Mr. Arthritis get on her "last Nerve" or when a certain "lame muscle" puts a strain on her. THEN MOVE OVER BABY! That is when she can really become a pain! She can knock you off your feet in a "New York Second", almost brings you to your knees, shorten your time on your feet, and she will make your lower back feel like is is going to break. Sometimes, she gets really riled up and shoots a pain down your leg, and makes you want to cry!

Now Mr. Arthritis - He is a "whole nuther story"! He is one bad dude! He is nothing but trouble from the word go! He can make life miserable for you, can make you hurt, control what you can/cannot do, causes you to pop pills, become close friends with heating pads, etc., etc..
AN UPDATE:
"Lame Muscle" decided to get it's act together. Decided it just was not worth all the pain. Still acts up on occasion, but figured it better not push it's luck to far.

Ms. Sciatica - Well, she is still a little irritated these days, but overall she decided she better straighten up and act right. She is finding out that when she acts up and gets cranky, she gets "zapped with electrodes", pushed on, and manipulated by this person called a "physio therapist".

Mr. Arthritis - Well he is an idiot! he just can't get it in his head that nobody wants him around. Will just have to try and keep him under control and show him who is boss!

THE GOOD NEWS: I have greatly improved, and have started getting my range of motion back slowly. I will only have to go to PT twice a week starting this next week, and will continue exercises for the lower back at home.
Right about now, you are probably thinking - Why did I open this post ! ! :-D

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!
